Tokyo: Shiseido Salon De Cafe

Sad as it may be, I have to face the facts. The fact is that my two-sentence post two days ago – by far my most word-economical – has become my most “liked” post. Ever. It appears that people would much rather read my silence than my babble. So I’m going to give it to you one more time. …I’ll just say this: Every single item tasted better than it looked, and every piece looked stunningly gorgeous. …And this: Surprisingly, the best-tasting thing was the mango parfait. My daughter said that it was the most tasty mango-based food item that … Continue reading Tokyo: Shiseido Salon De Cafe

Tokyo: Al Dente

On the third, or maybe fourth night of a trip you feel tired. It’s dinnertime and you don’t particularly feel any sort of hunger, but the kids need to eat.

But nothing. I can’t believe it! The one time that I was able to take notes in a well-regarded sushi restaurant in Tokyo because I was being served by the rare … Continue reading Tokyo: Kyubei

Tokyo: Airport Sushi

I usually research and plan out specific restaurants to eat at before I visit any city. Even for a city like Tokyo, which I have visited in excess of 10 times in the past decade, there are still countless restaurants on my list of restaurants-t0-visit that I’ve yet to try – not to mention the thousands of other amazing restaurants that I haven’t even heard of. If I told you that I visited Tokyo yesterday, it would be natural for you to assume that I visited one of the restaurants on my list of restaurants-to-visit-in-Tokyo. But I didn’t. I simply … Continue reading Tokyo: Airport Sushi
